At the Moorsway Federation we use Little Wandle Letters and Sounds revised to teach phonics.
It is a complete phonics programme that draws on the latest research into how children learn best; how to ensure learning stays in children’s long term memory and how best to enable children to apply their learning to become highly competent readers.
Ofsted have identified how the Little Wandle programme has supported schools to develop a love of reading, ensure decodable texts are well-matched to children’s developing phonics knowledge and to ensure that early reading is prioritised, amongst other things!
We selected this validated scheme as we believe that it gives ALL of our pupils the best chance of success in learning to read.
We hold regular parent meetings to give you a chance to become more familiar with how we teach phonics and early reading. Look out for the dates on your school's newsletter.
There are lots of really helpful videos and resources available to you on the Little Wandle website. Please take a look.
